Can someone tell me what Services go to North Sheilds, as I know 19/11/310/1, does the new Station has 5 platforms do you think they'll all be in use at one time. As the 1 would need 2, and rest 1. So maybe. 

Anyone got a timeline on when it would be done for?

Oh wow, seems that bus station will be quite busy

5 stands in total (if that's what the letter on the stands show)

I don't know why but I can see it being a bit of a white elephant like Four Lane Ends. There's not really much of a reason to travel to North Shields and the Metro connections there don't make sense for the majority of services since they already pass a metro station or the bus duplicates the Metro or connecting to certain services don't make much sense (310 in particular).

It seems an awful waste of money imo a bit like the Metro Station which was never complete and blew most the budget so the local stations got painted and not a lot more. The bus stops down by B&M and outside the co-op are perfectly fine.
10/11 to South Shields is the same vehicle (it arrive in as one number and depart as the other).
392 AFAIK doesn't go into the lower part of North Shields.

The 306 did start serving Northumberland Square, but probably gone back to its original route through Shields which avoided going into the Town Centre completely.

Also I have a feeling the 1 towards Gateshead won't serve the Transport Hub either as it be too tight on the timetable with the revised routing.

You also have National Express serving North Shields, though I'm not sure if it's still the case since Covid. Quite possibly I might have been one of the last passengers to use NatEx to North Shields on the Friday before the first Lockdown as I think NatEx only ran another week before the services were revised then later suspended.

No. I don't think this still happens
No, NX haven't run Newcastle-Ashington since the first lockdown
I'm guessing when Demolition work and building work starts. I'm guessing roads round the building will be closed
More stuff on the transport hub

As part of our ambitious plans to improve North Shields and transform the town into a residential location of choice and an attractive, family-friendly destination we are developing designs for a new transport hub and adjoining town square.

It forms part of our aims to create a smaller but more vibrant, high-quality town centre; to create more flexible retail opportunities and expand the evening and weekend economy; to improve public transport and the quality of walking and cycling connections across the town (including better links to Fish Quay); and to raise and improve the quality of the built environment and the quality of public space in North Shields with more of it suitable for hosting events and festivals.

The proposed transport hub will provide a modern, high-quality facility in the heart of the town centre.

The facility will bring public transport, including buses, Metro, taxis and links to cycling infrastructure, together in one place – making it easier for people to choose cleaner, greener forms of travel.

It is hoped that the transport hub will become the first net zero carbon building in North Tyneside and design work to achieve this is ongoing and has been designed with sustainability at the forefront through the use of materials, solar energyn as well as the way surface water quality is managed.

Safety and security also features predominantly in the designs with a high-quality, open and expansive waiting area.

There will be provision for artwork to be displayed and modern facilities including Changing Places toilets, which provide extra equipment and space for people with a disability to allow them to use the toilets safely and comfortably, and real-time information displays for all local bus, Metro and ferry services.

The transport hub will connect to the existing Metro station and town centre shopping area and will include opportunities for an additional retail offer to be accommodated inside. It will also include modern, high-quality cycle storage and the facility will connect to the expanding network of cycle routes in the borough.

The outside area will feature high-quality improvements to public spaces.
